Ok,this Ale after a long day of work it was the worst tasting and foul Ale I have ever had.Trust me I have had all kinds of beers and ales in the Military in various countries on my off time. The first swig left an aftertaste that lasted for 4 hours and still remains after chasing it with coffee and pepsi, even mouthwash and tooth paste could not get the foul taste out of my mouth. The taste was like rotten carrots and moldy coffee grounds. If you want a dark beer stick to something safe like Guines. Sorry But the MADTOWN NUTBROWN Asylum ....is for crazy people to drink...Any sane hard working man would take a swig...of one bottle and smash it...The rest I plan on getting my 8 bucks back from Burnsteads Market....If that dont work I am going to shoot the rest of the bottles with my .45 S&W....This beer is horrible. Perhaps good for younger more liberal tastes...you know the Starbucks Coffee Drinkers....which was rated one of the worst tasting cofees....its only popular by name. Good name for an Ale...but sorry you lose with me. Also I might add I am sorry for the over critical review....But I am calling a spade a spade.

2.78/5  rDev -24.9%

Served from bottle at ~45F

Appearance- murky, translucent brown with a thin beige head

Aroma- all malt. Dark chocolate and caramel

Flavor- the dominating flavor is the sweetness. To me it overrides all other flavors that are trying to come out. Some chocolate roastiness comes out towards the end, but the overall cloyingness makes it almost unpalatable.

Mouthfeel- medium to medium-heavy. The overall sweetness led me to the heavy. Carbonation seems appropriate

Overall- Although brown ales should be malty, this one misses the mark entirely. To me, it is too sweet and because of it, I missed the subtle malty nuances that a traditional English brown has.

Pours a chestnut brown with unfiltered particles floating in suspension of the beer's body. Nose consists of sweet malt, breadiness - like a baked pie crust, and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is medium and soft. Taste consists of caramel and malt. That "baked pie crust" aroma is featured again here in the flavor. Not much else is going on here. Overall, this was a huge let down.

2.88/5  rDev -22.2%

Served in a pint glass at the Argus.

Appearance: Welcoming orange-brown with ruby hues. Big off-white head. Nice lacing.

Aroma: Caramel malts dominate, chocolate, nuts, apple butter, biscuits, toast.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Great full-bodied caramel flavors but otherwise a bit of a let down. I want big dry-roasted nuttiness in a nut brown and this beer lacks that. Mouthfeel is slick and creamy but lends itself to much towards sweetness and isn’t dry enough. Some minor nut, toast, and chocolate flavors are present.

Drinkability: Ok, but not my cup of tea.

A-a ruddy brown color and murky not clear. A tan pillowy head that quickly breaks down into a film.
S-nutty malt goodness. No hop or yeast presence.
T-much like the taste. Sweet and nutty. Not much else
M-Medium bodied and carbonated
O-a plain brown ale. Tastes more like an English version. Not much character here but drinkable

*Reviewed from notes*
Poured on tap into a pint glass this brew had a nice acorn color with about a 3/4 inch white head. Once settled there was a nice cap with good lacing down the sides. There was a mild bitter smell with a backbone of nutty tones. Nothing was overly noticeable with the smell of this brew and that followed suit with the taste. This was a thin beer with mild carbonation and only a slight nutty flavor. Some hints of roasted malts in the aftertaste. This was a forgettable beer. Not great, but ok...with the prices there were better choices to make in the AA line-up.
